First of all, this e-mail is coming from the woman who is the queen of one more dish to wash and one more load to fold. I either have to really "book it" before our 8:30 start time or restrain myself until lunch time when it comes to those one more thing to do's.
With that said, on Monday, my son and I sat down to read from Renaissance Artists Who... Before we began, he turns to me and says, "You know which artist I think I am the most like?" Kind of a funny comment from a child who has terrible fine motor control, but is full of ideas. I had been thinking for a couple of weeks that he is a lot like da Vinci, but I wasn't going to let on for fear of influencing what he wanted to tell me.
He went on, "Leonardo da Vinci because he was interested in so many things." I told him I had been thinking the same thing about him for quite some time. We had a great conversation about the similarities and the differences between this genius and my almost 9 year old son.
I distinctly remember thinking that I was glad that my mind was focused on what my son was thinking and not the next thing that I was hoping to do at the next available moment that afternoon.
Thanks, Susie, for the encouragement to be in the present.
